Changed Lives in Colombia, South America

Changed Lives in Colombia, South America

Diego Morales represents FCAP in Latin America.  This past weekend Diego had opportunity to conduct a Christian service for some 80 troops of the Colombian Air Force.  The meeting was held in the dining hall because there are no Christian chapels on their military bases.  Diego spoke on the Christian soldier’s attitude during their military service, which normally takes between 12 and 18 months.  Some of the material presented came from our FCAP training seminar materials.  At the conclusion of the sermon, some 30 soldiers gave their lives to Christ.  God is using His people in the airlines, like Diego, in wonderful ways for His glory! (Pictured here with Diego are Major Jaime Aristizabal and his wife, Evelyn, who lead this ministry in Colombia.)

 

 

 

Blvd BASH Representation…Even in the Rain!

Blvd BASH Representation…Even in the Rain!

It is our privilege to be recognized as a club with Delta Air Lines and to be represented once again at the annual Delta Blvd BASH held in ATL on Saturday, October 19.  Thank you, Tim Files and Edward Church, for braving the wet and windy weather to set up and man our booth for the day.  Even though weather led to a much smaller attendance at the event than normal, it still proved to be (in the words of Tim and Edward) a “good day” with “divine appointments.”

 

 

 

 

 

Opportunity With Educators in Florida

Opportunity With Educators in Florida

In mid October, Paul Curtas (FCAP General Director) had opportunity to conduct a workshop for educators at the FACCS Conference (Florida Association of Christian Colleges and Schools).  He addressed the topic of a biblical view of work.  Amy DuBois, a professor at Columbia International University, was also a workshop presenter there.  In her workshop, she presented a biblical worldview of wealth and money management.  Amy has been a special blessing to us in FCAP over the past few years as she helped open the doors for Paul to go into the CIU Business School and share our Workplace Seminars with their students; she has been a tremendous encouragement and help with us in other things as well. (Pictured above are Paul and Amy at the FACCS Conference venue in Orlando.)

 

 

An Important Added Dimension

As an airline employee, you have been equipped to perform your job for your company. However, as a Christian, there is an added dimension you cannot afford to overlook. Your faith in the Lord should be integrated into the details of the job you have been trained to do. If not, then the job is not much more than a routine, and your faith becomes foreign to your work. But God has designed our faith in Him to operate at work, so that it brings significance to the routine of work, value to the little things we say and do, and a deep realization that something much bigger is being accomplished in it all. Does your job description have this added dimension to it?  (PMC)

Consider: “For the Word of God has sounded forth from you…but also in every place your faith toward God has gone forth, so that we have no need to say anything” (1Thessalonians 1:8).

This thought was written by Paul M. Curtas, General Director of FCAP.

 

 

Sharing the Good News

The Gospel is the most powerful message on earth and in heaven. But for a Christian to think that the only way they can share it at their workplace is by simply verbalizing it, they are falling short of God’s complete intent of presenting His Gospel message through His people. How? The power of this message should be illustrated through our way of living and thus demonstrated to people around us. If we know God’s love through the Gospel, we should show His love to those around us. If we understand God’s forgiveness because of the Gospel, we should forgive those who are far from it. When we have an opportunity to voice and explain its content to those ready to hear it, we must speak it. Consider: “For I am not ashamed of the Gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes” (Romans 1:16). Is your life an exhibition of the message you believe? (PMC)
